I refuse to be a victim of Blog Stat Obsession Disorder! Also know as BSOB. Symptoms include:
- checking your pageviews multiple times a day
- obsessing over missing a scheduled post for fear of losing a single page view count
- religiously documenting your blog stats each month
- freaking about the perfect picture
- booking your weekends solid of projects
I guess that's what I've been trying to do for 9 months, make my voice be heard. I feel like I have been so busy trying to pump out 3 posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Because, if I missed a day, my already poor stats suffered. I tried to make blogging my job, and it's not my job it's my hobby.
Well, I'm here to say that I refuse to be chained by these demands any longer. I love my home and I love sharing about it and my family. But from today forward, posts will be published when I have something to tell you about. I have to keep the "hobby" part in check.
I want to produce useful and interesting content, not just filler. I want my friends to appreciate what I have to share.
I still have a full list of projects I would love to complete and I will share along the way as I go. But I do not like having my life run by what is blogable and what isn't.
So see ya later blog stats, page views and visits, I want those that are here and loyal to get great content. That means that I can't be strapped to the demands of blogging schedules and pageviews.
Seeing as this is the first day of fall, it's appropriate to be turning a new bloggy leaf.
